of a jesuit education. >> harvey milk, when he was elected to the san francisco board of supervisors. their city council. in 1977. he said progress for gay rights would only come when gay people themselves come out of the closet. listen to him. audio of the great harvey milk in 1977, the same year he was killed, assassinated. >> we must continue to speak out and most importantly, most importantly, every gay person must come out. >> what do you say to the young man or woman who wants to pursue the kind of ambitions you held? and a lot of us have held? should they come out? should they come out or not if they're gay? >> if i can back up for a second, i think harry milk was very much right. when you look at people like evan wohlson and andrew sullivan talking about gay marriage, you look at a generation ago, people like larry cramer, david rothenberg, people if you will, leaders in the gay rights community, particularly around the aids crisis, that the gay community didn't have the luxury of silence because silence was implicit with death. and so the gay community began to become politi

hadn't said what he should have never said to the rich people in san francisco about clinging to guns and religion he would have been better off. it's fascinating how new technology, social networking is really demock ratizing things on both sides. >> he wanted to make sure it was organic. he wanted to make sure the american people knew he wasn't going to be profiting off this. that this was a real deal, that people needed to know, and he wanted to go in the grassroots and let it grow from there. the big thing, i am -- i was so struck by the nobility of this man and the character of this man and how -- how untarnished -- how unvarnished he was. he was not tarnished politically in any way, shape or form. and he talks about that tonight. this was not a get moment. this was something he fell into. and it evolved into a political game changer. i don't think fundraisers are ever going to be the same again. >> i think the secrecy, privatesy is gone. i hope everyone sticks around after my show tonight and watches your show. ed schultz with the big get tonight. we'll be watching your exclusiv

areless likely to come forth and say, my son's gay, living in new york or san francisco, therefore i'm for gay marriage. rather than saying, my son is gone now. is it different where you live? >> self-segregation where people who want to be out to go metropolitan areas and so, therefore, do attitudes change in a less rapid pace in, for instance, rural areas where they may not feel as comfortable? that's actually a really interesting question i've not seen people examine. but, you knows, regardless, i would say, for one thing, and i was reminded by this listening to jonathan talk about people whose parents still kind of won't acknowledge it. let's give credit to rob portman's son here who did a really brave thing. he was at yale university. relative to the rest of america, that's not a terribly difficult place to come out. however, he is the son of a prominent republican politician and that is an extremely difficult thing to do. but the other point i'd make, chris, here, and this may relate back to your original point about different areas of the country. there's majority support seem

in l.a., in san francisco, in seattle. he goes to austin, texas, probably the only liberal city in texas. and he asks these focus groups, how can we sound more friendly? but the base of the republican party, which is mostly in the south, and i don't mean austin, texas. they are more like donald trump. at this point, the core of their party are people whose core value is resentment. resentment against immigrants. resentment against minorities. and holding on to this economic philosophy that says give more and more tax break to the rich and the poor are bums. if they can't change that core problem, they can't add to the republican party. because most americans don't think that way. >> picking up on what you said -- >> chris, i want to add -- i would add to what joy said is even if the core isn't a majority of republicans, that base dominates their thinking. best example, the senate judiciary vote on universal background check. 93% of americans and all 8 republican senators voted against. they know better. they're afraid of their base. until they can stand up to that base, until th

of the american people. and that's what happened. >> joan, thank you for being with us. joen walsh in san francisco. the city hall right behind her there. she should run that place. >> thanks, chris. >> you did a good job and explained by your performance here tonight and honest responses to my question, the problem. >>> coming up, assault weapons plan is ban. 67% americans do support assault weapons ban. why does the nra keep winning? if progressives want to win, draw the line, now background checks. 90% of americans support them. let's let your member of congress know that from you on this issue, winning is the only thing. also, you have probably seen this scene from last week's cpac conference where one participant defended slavery. we're going to talk to an african-american doing a documentary called "black tea" about why some black people actually joined the tea party. >>> going wobbly on ashleigh judd. she would lose the senate race to mitch mcconnell and take down other democrats with her. key democrats including bill and hillary clinton are lining up behind another democrat. faste

,036 couples from 46 states and 8 countries who came into san francisco and got married. rob was one of the first people calling in 2004 celebrating that. he's been at it longer -- >> yes, i was talking about on this particular case. yes, no, i've been involved. >> let's talk about this judge we're all fascinated with. i've always liked anthony kennedy. he's in many ways a libertarian and believer in civil liberties. he certainly seemed to swing today giving sympathetic statements to both sides of the argument. at one point today he talked about the immediate legal injury being done to children of gay parents, if they lose their parents, as parents. let's listen. >> there's substantial -- that there's substance to the point that sociological information is new. we have five years of information to weigh against 2,000 years of history or more. on the other hand, there is an immediate legal injury or legal -- what could be a legal injury, and that's the voice of these children. there are some 40,000 children in california, according to the red brief, that live with same-sex parents. an
